Not feeling 100% myself

Ever have moments when you are not feeling 100% yourself ? I have been tired, lethargic and feeling just off  recently. And I know the root cause. Its how I am fueling and feeding my body.

If I am home, I generally cook and avoid eating out. I know what my body likes, and how it reacts to restaurant food. But lately, home cooking is just not happening.

 

This general blah feeling is due to a combination of several things :

I have been traveling a great deal which means eating out.

I have been indulging, several times a week.

I have been tired which means not necessarily cooking.

I have had many more social gatherings which means more alcohol than usual.

My exercise regimen is not as regular as usual.

All of this means my body is not loving me much at the moment. Too much sugar, too much bread, not enough protein and good fats, not enough “quality” sleep.

The next month is probably going to be just as crazy. So I am not going to beat myself up over feeling like this but I have too much going on at the moment to make any significant changes at the moment. And I am OK with that.

 

Ever have a blah period in your life ? How did you snap back ?

      I think I am a sucker for routine… at least that is what my body prefers !

    I get very blah in the winter. I’m craving (and eating) comfort foods, not moving quite as much due to not getting outside to walk as much, and the lack of sun and sunlight all leaves me feeling blah. When I’m feeling like that other times of the year, I’m sure to re-examine my diet and ask myself if I’m maybe over-training. I often find that an extra day off from a workout is just what my body needs to come back stronger.
    Hope you get back to feeling like yourself soon! I hear you on routine!
